Request more storage space for a current allocation

Our group has an allocation on Comet now. The disk storage space on Oasis that came with this allocation is by default 500GB.
However, we are running some jobs that produces some large files, and we often run up the disk space so some running jobs were killed due to this reason.

I was wondering if it is possible to request more disk space, e.g. 1TB for our current allocation.
I knew there is an action "Supplement", but that looks like used for requesting more computational SUs and a lot of documents is needed.

Hi Bo-
Yes, you can request additional storage resources via a supplement.
I believe it only requires the PI CV and a Progress report that includes justification for your request.
